We’ve been living in normality for ages and this minute size (somewhere around 65–125 nm in diameter) virus changed everything. On the 7th of June, our Prime Minister announced that Malaysia will be under Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO). Which means, we’re going to have a glimpse of freedom again (Yes!)
We at Tedboy constantly receive inquiries and suggestions that we should be making gluten-free products (bread and cakes) as there are customers who are gluten intolerant, or know someone who is on a gluten-free diet. So what is this about? Is it an allergy or just a preference in their daily diet?
During these uncertain times, the pandemic has truly pushed the world towards uncharted territories. From the initial feeling of shock when MCO took place to now being extended for 9 weeks (and counting), many of us have adopted the "New Norm", making use of what we have now to get through the day-to-day to flatten the curve of the virus.
As a thank you for their relentless efforts and dedication, Tedboy partnering with Prima Flour, Anchor Food Professionals Malaysia-Brunei and Tedboy's family and friends, started delivering our bread loaves to all hospital staffs in Hospital Sg Buloh. We will be doing this on alternate days for two weeks.
Nowadays, most packaging consists mostly or partially of plastic as it’s both impermeable to water and lasts a long time. Adding to the fact that it’s cheap and easily mass produced resulted in many production companies utilising it in their products. As a result of that, it has become one the largest contributing factor of environmental pollution, from our jungles to the ocean traces of litter and plastic can be seen, even in secluded areas where there is little to no human traffic.
Totebags have been around for many years, we just didn’t realise it as it appears in many other forms and materials. Our ancestors or grandparents have been using it for their morning grocery shopping, and the bags (more commonly known as ‘market basket’ during that time) were made of sturdier materials such as woven rattan, or recycled bamboo and more. During those times, these baskets are hard and not always easy to store.
